Course Description:

Welcome to Temple University's Clinical Reasoning Case project. This project was created for the students at Temple University in Philidelphia, and is part of the Orthopaedic curriculum. This project is a component of the Orthopaedic Coursework in both the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program and  The Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Residency at Temple University.

Objectives

Using real clinical cases during their clinical affiliations or mentoring hours, clinical reasoning strategies and principles will be explored using the HOAC II model (getsmartpt.org) and the Physical Therapy and Clinical Reasoning and Reflection Tool.

Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students will perform one in-depth case analysis using both models of clinical reasoning during their clinical affiliation with the Temple Faculty PT Practice. They will outline usage of both models and relative strengths/weaknesses associated with each during the early clinical reasoning stages. 

The goal of this project is to foster clinical reasoning skills in novice professionals and students in a real-world clinical environment.
